2022 Ducati Panigale V2 Bayliss: BORN TO CELEBRATE.

Introducing the new 2022 Ducati Panigale V2 Bayliss:

The new Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary celebrates one of the most successful riders of all time and the symbol of an entire community: Troy Bayliss. A special motorcycle, manufactured in a numbered series, the pure expression of Ducati sportsmanship and a tribute to a timeless passion.

Based on the Panigale V2, this version is made unique by the special livery, inspired by the 996 R on which Bayliss won his very first world championship title in 2001, and by the prestigious Öhlins components, that bring the track performance of the Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary to a whole new level.

The number 21 has been a magic number for Ducati ever since Troy Bayliss sculpted it with his victories in motorcycling history. Precisely in 2021, twenty years after winning the 2001 Superbike World Championship, Ducati is paying homage to the legendary career of the Australian rider by dedicating a special motorcycle to him, produced in a numbered series, which celebrates the first of the three World SBK titles won by Bayliss: the Ducati Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary.

The bond between Bayliss and Ducati Corse in the Superbike World Championship is one of the most fascinating stories in the motorsport universe. The results of this beautiful adventure are 52 victories, 94 podiums and three world titles (2001, 2006 and 2008) won with three different bikes: the twin-cylinder 996 R, the 999 R and the 1098 R. Troy Bayliss is the only motorcycle racer in history capable of winning in MotoGP and World Superbike in the same season (2006) and his achievements in the race have indelibly imprinted the Australian’s name in the hearts of all Ducatisti. Now the winning chemistry between Ducati and “Baylisstic” is rekindled with the creation of this celebratory motorcycle, the name of which was chosen directly by the rider, who also actively contributed to the creation of the graphic concept.

Starting from the base of the Panigale V2, the “Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary” version is characterized by its special livery, whose graphics are inspired by that of the 996 R which in the 2001 season powered Bayliss to the conquest of his first world title, revisiting its colors and cuts. Ducati red is the main color of the bike, and it joins green and white in a tribute to the Italian spirit of the Bologna-based motorcycle manufacturer, while the iconic #21, Troy Bayliss’ race number, and the Shell logo, which visually strengthen the link with the racing bike, stand out on the sides and front. Troy’s autograph is reproduced on the fuel tank, while the billet aluminum triple clamp shows the name of the bike and the progressive numbering of this unique model.

At the same time the details in Rosso Ducati emphasize its sporty and powerful character. Rosso Ducati colors the rims, the front air intakes and the deflectors of the upper half-fairings. These last two red touches ideally accompany the path of the airflows inside the motorcycle, i.e. those that feed the engine and those that pass through the radiator.

Testimonial of the Panigale V2 and protagonist of the photo and video shoot of the new livery is the rider of the Pramac Racing Team, Francesco “Pecco” Bagnaia. In fact, Pecco was able to enjoy a preview of the bike by testing it at the Misano World Circuit “Marco Simoncelli.”

“Since 2016, my personal motto has been #GoFree. For me it means living in a light-hearted and carefree way, having fun and giving priority to the things you love to do. I think the Panigale V2 fits well with this definition and reflects my way of being, “ said Pecco Bagnaia after trying the Panigale V2. “The new livery, so white, is very beautiful and different from the usual. Despite being a street bike, it surprised me how much speed it can have when cornering. It is a fun, very stable and very sincere bike that allows you to go fast, safely, without becoming tired, while having a very strong and decisive character and personality. ”

The Panigale V2, presented less than a year ago and capable of immediately conquering an enthusiastic public, is the super-mid of the Ducati sports bikes and represents the entry model to the Panigale family. It is powered by the 955 cc Superquadro twin-cylinder engine (compliant with Euro 5 standard) and has a maximum power of 155 hp at 10,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 104 Nm at 9,000 rpm. The power of the Panigale V2 allows riders to have fun on the track, delivering a motorcycle in the hands of the rider that never puts you in difficulty and can always be fully exploited. The delivery of the twin-cylinder is such that more than 70% of the maximum torque is constantly available beyond 5,500 rpm, allowing to get out of the corners quickly, even the slowest ones.

The chassis of the Panigale V2 is based on the monocoque frame and is dressed in an elegant and sporty design inspired by that of the Panigale V4. The fairing has extensive and clean surfaces that surround the mechanical components, enhancing the small size of the Superquadro twin-cylinder and creating a visually compact motorcycle.

The “family feeling” with the other Panigale models is also underlined by the single-sided swingarm, while the compact-sized single lateral exit exhaust, with under-engine silencer, emphasizes the clean lines of the Panigale V2.

The complete and modern electronic equipment, based on the 6-axis inertial platform, leaves no doubt about the sporting DNA of the bike. The electronic package, dedicated to active safety and vehicle dynamics control, includes the “cornering” functionality applied to the Bosch ABS, an electronic gearbox, with operation also in downshift and traction, engine braking and wheelie controls. All the controls are integrated into the three Riding Modes (Race, Sport and Street) that can be modified via the 4.3” TFT color dashboard with graphics and interface designed to make menu navigation and setting adjustments intuitive, as well as the immediate identification of the selected Riding Mode.

The chassis has fully adjustable suspension with a Showa Big Piston Fork (BPF) 43 mm in diameter and a Sachs shock absorber set up to make the bike intuitive, agile and fun; in addition, the specific calibration of the hydraulic brakes makes it comfortable for road use. Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa II multi-compound tires, which combine track performance with versatility on the road, also contribute to the dynamic qualities of the Panigale V2.

The ergonomics of the semi-handlebars and the rider seat offer a non-fatiguing position on the road and an efficient one on the track, thus allowing the rider to move freely.

The technical equipment is completed by a Sachs steering damper and by a Brembo braking system with M4.32 monobloc callipers activated by a radial brake master cylinder. The discs are 320 mm in diameter at the front with a single 245 mm disc at the rear. Braking is powerful, never excessively aggressive and always adjustable.

The Panigale V2 in White Rosso livery will be available in U.S. Ducati dealerships starting in August 2020.

2022 Ducati Panigale V2 Bayliss Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

To make the motorcycle even more effective in track riding, Ducati has chosen to equip the Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary with Öhlins components. The NX30 front fork and TTX36 rear shock absorber guarantee maximum smoothness and are designed to achieve the best performance on the circuit, with a set-up that makes the bike more precise and offers the rider greater feeling and greater support in all riding phases. The steering damper, thanks to the adjustments it is equipped with, allows you to customize its calibration by adapting it to riding style and the characteristics of the track.

Compared to the standard version, the Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary is also 3 kg lighter (6.6 pounds), thanks to the adoption of a lithium-ion battery and the choice of the single-seater configuration that explicitly recalls the look of the racing bike (passenger seat and footrests are available in the equipment supplied).

The equipment is completed by the sport grips, the silencer outlet cover in carbon fiber and titanium and the rider seat made by combining two different technical materials with double red stitching. Troy’s number 21 is embroidered on the saddle and, together with the green and red bands, makes up the Italian flag. The motorcycle is also equipped with self-cleaning brake and clutch pumps with smoke grey oil tanks.

The Panigale V2 is the super-mid of Ducati sports bikes and represents the entry model to the Panigale family. It is powered by the 955 cc Superquadro twin-cylinder unit, with a maximum power of 155 hp at 10,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 104 Nm at 9,000 rpm. The chassis is based on the monocoque frame, while the elegant and sporty design is inspired by that of the Panigale V4.

The electronic package, dedicated to active safety and vehicle dynamics control, includes the “cornering” function applied to Bosch ABS, the electronic quick shift gearbox that also works when downshifting and traction, engine brake and wheelie controls (Ducati Quick Shift, Ducati Traction Control, Ducati Wheelie Control, Engine Brake Control). All the controls are integrated into the three Riding Modes (Race, Sport and Street) that can be modified using the 4.3″ color TFT dashboard with graphics and interface designed to make menu navigation and settings adjustment intuitive, as well as immediate identification of the selected Riding Mode.

The bike was officially presented by Ducati in a special episode of the Ducati World Première made at the Ducati Museum, on the track and at Troy’s home in Australia. Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali, Ducati Corse Team Manager Davide Tardozzi, who was alongside Bayliss throughout his career in Ducati, Director of the Centro Stile Ducati Andrea Ferraresi and Ducati Head of Product Communications Giulio Fabbri all contributed to the presentation of the characteristics of the bike and the storytelling of the incredible relationship between Ducati and Bayliss. Troy himself took part in this video, sharing with Ducatisti his most indelible memories and emotions experienced on the bike.

The World Superbike universe will also pay tribute to Bayliss’s career during Round 5 of the season, scheduled for the weekend at the Assen track. On Friday, July 23, at 7:00 a.m. (EDT) the Australian champion will be the protagonist of a virtual press conference at the Paddock Show together with Ducati Corse Sporting Director Paolo Ciabatti, in which the most important stages of the victory of Troy’s first title, won on the Dutch circuit, will be remembered. On Sunday, July 25, at 6:05 a.m. (EDT) after the SuperPole Race, the Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary will complete a lap of honor on the track, ridden by Aruba.it Racing – Ducati factory rider Michael Ruben Rinaldi, who competes in WorldSBK with the same number as Bayliss.

The twentieth anniversary of Troy Bayliss winning his first title with Ducati is being celebrated in Borgo Panigale with a temporary exhibition in the Ducati Museum entitled “Troy Story: The Legend of a Champion” which exhibits the bikes with which Troy was able to write some memorable chapters in the history of motorcycle racing.

The twin-cylinder Panigale has a completely new look and refined electronics thanks to the use of the Inertial Platform, and is even better performing and safer on the track, not to mention fully exploitable and enjoyable on the road thanks to a more comfortable seat and revised suspension setup.

Its name lets the lovers of Borgo Panigale twin-cylinders know that the model is powered by the 955 cm³ Superquadro.

The Panigale V2 replaces the previous 959 Panigale as the entry model for the Panigale supersport bike family.

The Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary will be available in U.S. Ducati dealers starting October 2021 at a dealer price of $21,000 USD. The motorcycle will be available in Canada and Mexico showrooms starting November 2021 at a dealer price of $23,695 CAD and 484,000 MEX Pesos.

 

 

Interview with a Ducati hero: Troy Bayliss

From the double fall at his debut in Japan to the three unforgettable victories in the World SBK: Troy Bayliss is the perfect embodiment of the Never Give Up spirit that is an integral part of Ducati’s DNA. The color red, together with the number 21, are the symbols of a unique, almost unrepeatable partnership that has overcome even the challenge of time, as the Australian rider himself tells us at the launch of the new Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Year Anniversary.

“A story that just doesn’t seem to end”

Troy, it’s been 20 years since your first World SBK Championship? How does it feel like?

Actually it doesn’t feel like it was 20 years ago… I say time flies when you’re having fun! And that’s what happened in all these years. I started racing with Ducati way back in 1998 with a private team and that ended successfully winning the British Superbike Championship. In 2000 I started with the World Championship team and, since then, Ducati has been part of my life. We’ve had many ups and downs along the way but it’s just something that doesn’t seem to end.

If you were to pick one moment from all these years, which one would it be?

Of course you never forget your first world championship, because you realize that’s how you do it, and then you strive to repeat it over and over again. We managed to do that a couple more times and for me it was special. But I had so many great times along the whole journey that it’s difficult to pinpoint only some of them. I guess maybe the greatest memory that I’ll never forget is actually crossing the line in 2008 in Portimao, with a third world championship but also knowing that it was my last ride at world level and the end of my life in Europe.

Born to race and win together

You won with three different generations of Ducati. What is your favorite one?

996, 999 and 1098 all suited me so well. It didn’t really matter which generation I hopped on, I always felt like I was sitting in my own chair and the bike was built for me.

What do you think of the new Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Year Anniversary?

I think it reflects on what we’ve done together in the past. My time and my career was on the on the V-twin so seeing the new bike with the V-twin and the trellis frame feels very great. Of course over the years everything progresses. The bikes are becoming faster and they have a lot more electronics on them than what they used to. They are so much nicer and kinder to ride and a safer option to let the guys go faster. The new Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Year Anniversary is a great little all-round bike that many people are going to enjoy, and I’m looking forward to doing some more laps on it. I also asked if I could possibly be the owner of #21 of the series, because I have a few of this bike’s cousins in the shed as well and I’d like one more.

The number 21 is also something you never gave up on. Where does it come from?

When I was drafted into the world squad, Davide Tardozzi said “Troy, what number do you want?”. Davide was always very blunt, very sharp, we’ve been close for many many years. I said to him “I don’t know, I don’t care”. So he said “Okay, you’ll have 21, that’s what my number was”. And it just grew on me, I thought it was a really cool number. Michael Rinaldi now has the number 21 in the World SBK Championship, which is nice to see, and he’s had a win not too long ago as well, which is even better.

Speaking of winning, what impact did that day at Assen in 2001 have on your career?

It’s certainly highlighted what we could do and certainly made me a player for the following year. It was good for me in my head to win a championship, knowing that I could do it and it left me in a good place knowing I could come back and be one of the fastest guys on the track and guys will be looking at me as the rider to beat.

Passion runs in the family

You became a hero for many Ducatisti, and you still are. Ducati is a very passionate family, what’s your relationship with the Ducati family?

After all these years I’m still a big Ducati fan and I feel very privileged to be part of Ducati. I always come to the World Ducati Week. I think I may have missed one in over 20 years. It’s a very special time and it’s a great place for Ducati to showcase all the riders, the teams and the bikes. Everyone that has Ducati comes along, it’s one of the biggest events that I’ve ever been to and I always have such a great time there. I hope in the near future it can come back, I really want to be there again.

And we really look forward for you to join us. Maybe with your son Oli?

Yes, our youngest boy Oli is now riding in the DesmoSport Ducati team in the Australian Superbike Championship. He’s had his first win aboard the Panigale V4 R. So yeah, it has been a very special year for us guys and we can’t wait to celebrate it with all the Ducati fans around the world.
